Somebody thought a good idea for a game whose defining feature is parkour was to add vehicles? Somebody over there had a stroke, and not the genius kind.

Wonder how much driving there really is. I hated the driving parts of Rage. Hopefully this is just to get to your destination quicker while running over a few zombies.

A difficulty dropdown has been added to the Versus A.I. screen, which can be used to switch among five different A.I. difficulty settings: Beginner, Recruit, Adept, Veteran, and Elite.

WOOT! Bots were way too fucking easy!

Congrats to both EG and CDEC. That was an awesome epic final match and CDEC did amazingly well. My only complain is on Valve's side. They really need to step of the post-game show. Not only does the stream in the Dota2 client stop shortly after the game (which cuts off commentary), I heard there wasn't much else after that aside from the music. They need an awards show or something, instead of just turning the lights off and going home.

Lots of fun though.

This would let me hide my level of suck in a real PvP match.

Artifacts look cool, but everyone running around with the same weapon is meh. As I watched the video, I was hoping artifacts were the red named weapons and they'd be the new super-rare items that you had to work hard to get. Guess not. Not everyone should have Ashbringer.

Order Halls are garrison 2.0. I'm optimistic. If it's more like a hub, and there's a real reason to go there from time to time (unlike the DK area), then I'm interested.

And fuck yeah, Dalaran. They didn't say it, but I really hope it's a shared city. There was another city on the map they were showing, but I hope Dalaran is it. And I hope it's the same size as before. That place really felt alive.

Regardless of what the privacy settings are, the OS is free to lie to you about everything.

Also, if the OS is lying about it, it's only a matter of time until someone finds out. You can bet your ass people are sniffing the traffic coming out already to see what's being sent.

I wonder how far the subs have to drop before WoW 2.0 drops. This at least explains why the expansion is coming so soon.

I was also getting random disk usage spikes to 100% for a min or so, wehn back to 8.1 and everything is fast with zero problems.

I'm getting the same spike on one of my computers on a Samsung SSD. My other computer, also with an SSD, works just fine though. Spikes last around 20 seconds. Incredibly annoying. Boot time for me is fine though at 20 seconds with the latest nvidia drivers.

Don't sign in with a microsoft account. Better yet... don't even create one.

I fucked up yesterday and did this. After creating a local account I wanted to check out this super-fast version of Minecraft for Windows 10. So I sign in to the store via my Live account to grab it. Step away from computer for a few minutes and it locks. Come back and it wants my Live account password to unlock the screen, which is a randomized 24 character string that I don't know (I copy/paste it from the vault). Motherfuck. Stupid thing switched from local account to online account. Ended up having to go in to work just to open my vault and get the password. Stupid fucking thing. Lesson learned though. Avoid the store at all costs.

Thanks for all the feedback. Sound like a waste of money, even at $5 or so.

I enjoyed it. At $5 it would be well worth it IMO. Just don't go in to it thinking it's a Thief game.

I'll buy it. The Don't Starve games are fun. It gets a bit tedious later in the game though when I have to keep chopping trees. At least food gets easier. One of the more enjoyable survival games I've played.

Even if I remotely thought about playing WoW again, I would probably just wander around all the abandoned areas. Everyone just flocks to the new zones from what I've read.

This is a major issue with WoD. Nobody flocks to new zones (Tanaan aside) because they're all sitting in their garrison. There's no reason to go anywhere. You can queue to anything. You can get resources in your garrison (herbs and mining). Tanaan is crap anyway unless you loved crystal farming and wanted to do it multiple times a day. Aside from the boss, there's no reason to go there once you finish rep grinding for flying.

I really wish they'd bring back a Dalaran type city so I know other people exist in the world.

This seems early considering the last one came out just last year.

'cause WoD sucks and they want to sweep it away. The leveling up experience was awesome. But the end-game is crap. Only 1 content patch (compared to 3+ for others). Putting a vendor in my garrison doesn't count as content (6.1). While I'm bitching, shipyards are pure shit. Worst mechanic in the whole game. BAH I say!

Anyway.. I'll be glad to move on to the next expansion. I just pray it isn't orc related.

Stim packs are like 150% gold gain, 100% XP gain.

Shit, really?? ... I should use mine. 150% gold would be awesome.

I feel like they completely missed the nostalgia train on this one.

Yeah, I'm trying to get excited about it, but I'm not digging the art style. I figure I'll watch some Let's Plays and then decide from there. I want it to succeed because King's Quest was such a huge part of my gaming, but I have my doubts.

I really want to grab this game but it's 50 / $78 on Steam, which is pathetic (new AAA games are usually 30-35 / $47-55). I can pick it up for 16 / $25 but it activates on GOG.com, whereas I own the other games on Steam and don't like managing multiple accounts.

I started diversifying my game library and buying from GOG when I can. I realized I had hundreds of games on Steam, and if anything ever happens to that account, they're all gone until it's resolved (if ever). The DRM free installers and cheaper prices helps too. And Galaxy makes the patching process easy to use.

Some of the stuff you can do in ARK....

Village and Ocean Platform

Underwater Base

The resources needed to build these things make me twitch. I was happy when I got my first bed in a little shack.

I don't think I've done PvP in WoW (on purpose) since Wintergrasp. I really miss that zone.
